Message from the Office

Dear Parents & Students,


A Prayer for the Second Sunday of Advent


Jesus, you came among us with the irresistible power of a baby,

requiring both our hands and captivating our whole hearts.

Help us to cast aside the sin and brokenness that we cling to,

so we might be ready to hold you when you come again.

Amen


God Bless

Draw will take place the last week of school prior to Christmas so winners will have some extra Christmas Cash! Once you have sold all your tickets, stubs must be returned to the office in an envelope marked "Christmas Raffle Stubs" NO LATER than December 15.


For inquiries/questions on Voyage Quebec fundraising, please contact Chair Tony Matos (matos.tm@gmail.com) or Treasurer Megan Plemel (mdplemel@gmail.com)
